Watain have confirmed that their seventh full length studio effort will arrive in the Spring of 2022.
Two of the OG forces of evil will be bringing their personal brand of bleak to Spring 2022. Black metal legends Mayhem and Watain are set to head to the North America for their aptly named “The Sanguine Sodomy of North America” tour. The Norwegian and Swedish outfits unite to bring pummeling darkness all across the US and Canada. They will be supported by blackened speed metal band Midnight.
Watain just finished recording their seventh studio album, which is set to be released just prior to the tour in Spring of 2022 through Nuclear Blast. Mayhem most recently released Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando EP in 2020 and no announcements of a follow up have been made.
Watain recently shared the following at the start of their recording process for the band’s next studio effort, “Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great reverence and infernal hunger alike that we now stand before the next chapter of Watain. Armed with the faith, force and fire accumulated during the Trident Wolf Eclipse era we are now entering terra incognita, to again face our inner selves and the ever expanding abyss that roars within. A few months of hard noble work lay ahead, and we could not be more ready for it. We are most eagerly looking forward to sharing the result with you all in the wild times to come. Until then: stay hungry, stay deviant, stay free and fuck the world!”
In a collective statement, they explain, “Mayhem and Watain are delighted to announce that what is to become known in history as the ‘Sanguine Sodomy of North America’ is set to take place in the spring of 2022, with both our bands at the helm and with the infamous Midnight joining us as special guests. We hereby invite all of our North American friends and foes to celebrate the return of Darkness and Evil to your lands, and to join us in what is destined to become one legendary Hell of a tour!”
“The Sanguine Sodomy of North America” tour kicks off March 7 in San Francisco, with dates booked through April 3 in Joliet, Illinois. Tickets go on sale this Friday!
